Is a 400M/ C4 combo in a 1976 Gran Torino Wagon rare?

45

Asked by Oct 28, 2014 at 10:51 AM about the 1976 Ford Torino

Question type: General

I purchased a 1976 Ford Gran Torino Base Model Wagon last year.  I was told it was a C6 car only to find out last night that it has a C4 trans.  My intentions are to replace the 400M/ C4 with a 1968 429/ C6 out of a T-Bird.  I've been told to get a build sheet and hold off on ripping the car apart until I find out exactly what I have.  I was going to rat rod it out because that's what I'm into.  Is this engine/ trans combo that rare that I should leave it alone?

no, not that rare- the '72 Torinos have that pretty face and they are the only ones commanding slight premiums- any cars after '74 are heavily emissioned and lose a certain amount of desirability in the marketplace- I like your idea of customizing that wagon and if it is done cleanly it will make that care much more valuable- and cool-
